Advocacy and lobbying

Working through networks

As a member of several networks, AEDH takes part in campaigns to influence public opinion and raise public awareness about fundamental human rights.


We lobby governments, international institutions and diplomatic posts through urgent appeals concerning cases of serious attacks on individual victims whose rights are being abused. We alert the authorities, denounce the facts and demand protection and justice for the victims.

Working within international institutions

AEDH does all it can to ensure that those local organisations working on the ground have their voice heard. Since 1993 AEDH has the status of observer at the African Commission on Human and People’s rights, and since 1998 AEDH has the consultative status at the United Nations.
